After reading a Tennessean article in which Al Bunetta of Oh Boy Records is quoted as recommending this beautiful little Sicilian eatery in Hillsboro Village, I decided to try the place. I’m never one to miss a good Italian meal! Much to my surprise, I bumped into Al there having lunch with Jonah Rabinowitz, executive director of the W.O. Smith Music School. I shouldn’t be surprised to find Al there, since there is a sandwich on the menu bearing his name. As he told me, “that better than winning a Grammy!” Al should certainly know, since he took home the coveted award in 1987 in the Best Contemporary Folk Recording category for his work on the Tribute to Steve Gooman. Although I didn’t try it, Al’s namesake sandwich sounded tasty. I do highly recommend the stuffed pepper and/or the lasagna, however, which I believe has to be the best in Nashville. Don’t even get me started on the pastries! This is Italian cooking at it’s finest! Located at 2121 Belcourt.
